LABOR EMPLOYEES CONDUCTED OWN POLL

Media reports this week about a poll conducted by the Labor Department on candidates for commissioner were the result of employees conducting their own call-in.
When workers heard that two people were being considered for commissioner, they decided to flood the St. Croix office with calls to state their preferences, according to the Daily News.
The two candidates named were Lloyd McAlpin and former Sen. Carol M. Burke.
Government House confirmed that Burke and McAlpin are on a list of names being considered for Labor commissioner.
The Daily News did not report who won the poll.
